Great staff, ever helpful, lovely breakfast room with super-fast, friendly service and plenty of good food (loved the kippers!). Bedroom was very comfortable, though I would suggest that anyone with walking difficulties might like to check what floor they will be on! If your room happens to be upstairs and you're ok yourself but not so ok with carting your...

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I am delighted to hear that you enjoyed your breakfast, the kippers are a firm favourite on our breakfast menu. You do have to take some stairs to get to our rooms on the first and second floor but they do benefit from some beautiful views of St Andrews and...

Incredibly clean, warm and comfortable. Staff couldn't do enough for you. An excellent location with a wonderful breakfast. Highly recommend this place to stay to anyone looking in the area. Stayed in the "Den" at the back of the property with lovely view of the garden. Very cosy and would definitely come back.

We booked online attracted by the picture showing it to be a period property. The location was ideal for us visiting the university across the road but would suit anyone wanting to be in walking distance of St Andrews' tourist attractions. Nowhere we went was more than about a 20 minute walk. The staff were welcoming and friendly. Our room...

Spent one night here on a reunion weekend in St Andrews. The staff were lovely, friendly and helpful and every room had its own decor and charm. What a contrast to the standard decor in larger hotels. And everything was pristine. Breakfast had everything you could want and the vegetarian feast was excellent. Would thoroughly recommend this hotel if you...

Well kept hotel with small rooms but everything that's required for a pleasant relaxing overnight stay. The breakfast choice is excellent with amazing tastes for all. Centrally located with shops, restaurants, cafes and cultural activities all within hop, skip, jump distances. Free parking at door - if there are spaces. Otherwise pay to park further along street.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are a small, friendly, informal 3 star hotel. The first in St Andrews to be awarded the prestigious title 'Townhouse Hotel' by the Scottish Tourist Board. The quaint old building has a warm personality all of its own. You will love the craftsmanship of the many original features. Built from 1764, the hotel consists of two Georgian terraced houses, both exactly the same layout, built for two brothers by their father, Mr Thomas Low. With only 22 rooms (all en-suite), we are able to maintain very high standards in accommodation and service without losing our warm and caring attitude towards our guests. Special, great value seasonal, weekend and golf breaks are often available, so contact the hotel for details. The hotel will also be delighted to help arrange golf, sightseeing tours and visits to places of interest. We look forward to you spending some time with us at The Albany Hotel and getting a real flavour for everything St Andrews has to offer. ... more   less
